Dwight: Makin’ It Rain

We found this on the Library’s website, and it was too good not to share. Dwight Eisenhower wasn’t around all that much during his five-year presidency of the university, but he seems pretty chuffed to be at Columbia here, circa 1953.

What joie de vivre!

    @Damn As awesome as this is, I’m still disappointed that this isn’t a Dwight Schrute-related post.
